Naming Classes Without “Manager”

Alan Green:

“Manager” has come to be a danger signal to me—warning of lack of thought on behalf of the application’s designer. It either means (a) that the designer couldn’t be bothered thinking of a truly descriptive name, and begs the question, “What else couldn’t the designer be bothered with?”, or (b) that the designer hadn’t carefully thought through the role and responsibilities of this class.

Question-begging aside, I agree.
